Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the amended National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) code needs to be reviewed by the Federal Government.

Osinbajo stated this during a session with Nick Clegg, vice-president of Facebook’s policy and communication on Friday.

He said the amended NBC code needed a second look so that the work of ‘hard-working and creative people’ will not be stiffled in the country.

“The NBC code is one where there is now activity around trying to take a second look at it. Those who say that it is pro-competition, it is one I think we should take a second look at,” Osinbajo said.

“Basically, it says if you have a licenced product for TV, you’re expected to share it with other platforms. It’s one which I understand the argument of those who say this is a violation of copyright and intellectual property which is a very strong point and this is why I think we have to take a second look at it and see whether there are ways of moderating it to be more acceptable so as not stifle the work of very very hardworking, creative people.”

More details soon.
